Hainan free trade port gets fresh boost

CHINA yesterday issued a guideline to support easing market access in the Hainan free trade port in its latest effort to build the island into a globally influential, high-level free trade port.

The guideline, jointly released by the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Commerce, detailed measures to innovate market access in the pharmaceutical and health sectors, optimize financial market entries and development environment, and promote wider entries in the fields of culture and education.

China will support innovative development of home-made high-end medical equipment and high-end medical beauty industry in Hainan, as well as promote online sales of prescription drugs, the guideline said.

To optimize market access in the financial sector, efforts will be made to support the development of securities, insurance and funds in the province.

In terms of boosting entries in the cultural field, market access in the cultural relics sector will be widened, and Hainan will be supported to develop the industries of cultural performances and online gaming, the guideline noted.

Efforts will also be made to widen access in the field of education, and prestigious universities in the country will be supported to set up international colleges in Hainan.

Entries to civil aviation, sports and seeds markets in Hainan will be eased.

Xu Shanchang, an NDRC official, hailed the guideline’s measures in fields including online sale of prescription drugs, commercial aerospace and new-energy infrastructure as trailblazing. The efforts are expected to revamp industrial access and supervision mechanisms, and form a more vibrant climate of reform and innovation in the construction of market access system of the country as a whole, Xu said.
